6” black walnut. Very happy with how this turned out. The last few that i made weren’t centered as well.

-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?

They are fun to make and you did a good job. If it is not quite square you can use a belt sander to make it right.

Now all you have to do is undercut the wings which I like doing.

Good luck and you are doing a fine job

Looking at it from the top view, someone might not realize what’s lurking underneath.
